. a little more than four years ago i stood with mr. tim geithner and announced him as my first nominee to my cabinet. we were barely two months into the financial crisis, the stock market had cratered, the housing market had cratered as well. bank after bank was on the verge of collapse and worst of all more than 800,000 americans would lose their jobs in just that month. and the bottom was not yet in sight. so, i couldn't blame tim when he tried to tell me he wasn't the right guy for the job. but i knew that tim's extensive experience with economic policy made him imminently qualified and i also knew that he could hit the ground running. as chairman of the new york federal reserve he had just spent several sleepless and chaotic weeks immersed in the complexity of the crisis and had been working closely with his republican predecessor at treasury to save the financial system. then, with the wreckage of our economy still smoldering and unstable, i asked him to help put it back together. thanks in large part to his steady hand, our economy has been growing again for the past three years, our b

, tim geithner at treasury, hillary clinton at state who stayed on the whole time. is this a reflection on this president or just how grueling and critical this job has become? >> i think it's a reflection of how grueling and critical the job has become and how tough it is on people. i talked to someone leaving the white house yesterday. i said what are you going to do? i'm going to get a job where i don't have to get up at 5:00 a.m. every day. it never stops, 24/7 and not surprising that people after two years or a year decide they want to do something else. it's very hard on people, particularly people with young kids and families. >> the top contenders for chief of staff are two more white men, den is mcdonough and ronald klain. let me get your reaction to this. >> barack obama is black. >> some of the president's top advisers are women, valerie jarrett, half of the white house staff is women. that's been a diverse cabinet and white house staff. what we're experiencing now is a communications problem more than an actual diversity problem. >> rich, is this an optics problem? >> let me
secretary boss tim geithner had to improve what his signature looked like. it was kind of scrawling too. in order to fit on the money he improved it. white house press secretary jay carney was asked about lew's hand writings and whether he is practicing his signature. koorney said, not that i'm aware of. jenna: you remember grade school where they give you lines to follow to practice your penmanship? jon: one would think. jenna: how is your penmanship? jon: i think it is readable, shows my name but my penmanship is pretty awful. jenna: we may need to do a close-up shot. jon: i don't like to bright. the brain works faster than the hand. >> we'll see, show you the improvement if there is one to jack lew's signature when we get it. meantime we'll move onto this other story. right now to the dangerous flu outbreak really spreading throughout this country. 44 states are now reporting widespread illness. take a look at that map! almost all red. hospitals are reporting severe overcrowding. some forcing ambulances to go, to different hospital because there is simply no room in the one they're h

will be replaced by who knows. tim geithner is out. he'll be replaced by a guy, jack lew, the guy who, if you've been watching the tv over the last day or so, jack lew is the guy who signs his name with what surely looks like a slinky. >>brian: front page "where are the women?" they take a picture and talk about the cabinet of the administration. all the women are being replaced by men. white men too on top of that. let me show you a picture in "the new york times." all we see is valerie jar rhett's leg -- valerie jarrett's leg. >>steve: on december 29 that is the pr-z meeting with ten guys and they're talking about the fiscal cliff. >>brian: could they back up a little. >>gretchen: this is a picture they released the day after, i believe. and you can see valerie jarrett front and center facing the president. then there are two other women who are in the photos. was it a reaction to that original picture? brian, you bring up a good point that there are no minorities -- there's one, i think, in that original picture. it is an interesting discussion because there was so much made in this last p
considered failures. tim geithner's tenure has been controversial but i think broadly speaking what he did to write the financial system will be considered a tremendous achievement in the annals of economic policy-making. but again, they are in something of a rut, i think, in their economic policy-making at this point, and particularly in their approach to dealing with republicans. a lot of that, i'd say frankly the bulk of that blame falls on the house republicans and john boehner. but it's nevertheless a case that they just put somebody into the treasury department who they intend to have lead a lot of their budget battles who john boehner at this point essentially refuses to work with. during the 2011 negotiations, they said boehner and the republicans said we just don't want to deal with lew anymore. we don't feel we can get him to say yes to us. now, to some degree that might be because lew is reflecting the will of the president, but i just think there's a kind of a siege mentality a little bit at the white house that's showing up in their appointments, which is understandable, but i
attain to. >> exactly. >> tim geithner who apparently jeff sessions thinks is a great guy, he was at the fed while this stuff was going down. he was part of the clinton administration that deregulated wall street that allowed the whole thing to go down. and yet now he's got gravitas. all of them are tainted, whether it's by bonuses or policy setting. you know, jack lew is one of the less offensive, maybe totally inoffensive thing -- the only thing people are objecting to is the signature. that tells you something. >> what do you make of, say, jeffrey sachs arguing a couple days ago that there's a problem having wall street people going to the treasury because, you know, you've got foxes guarding the henhouse? >> there are two pieces -- actually now like three or four pieces of financial regulation. treasury deals with part of it, but they also have to deal with all sorts of economic policy including maintaining confidence in the financial markets. that used to be one of the big roles that people like bob ruben were to be able to do. there are multiple roles treasury secretary
replaces treasury secretary geithner. i think that will have a big affect on stock markets and on the country's credit rating. i think it will have less of an effect on jobs initially. >> interesting. that much on tim git neareithne departure. the rich are getting richer. the richest added $241 billion to their value. where are they finding their fortunes? >> great question. three main places where we're seeing the rich getting richer. first in emerging markets. a lot of very rapid wealth creation happening. i think that's adding a lot more billionaires to these lists. the second is the fact that real estate values, especially state side, are starting toic tick up. a lot of billionaires have a lot of real estate. and all of the major stock market indexes have been up in the past year. a trend we've been seeing and hearing about. forbes has been tracking this closely for the past year. we'll see it continue next year. we're actually getting ready to release our billionaires list in march. we'll see some newcomers this is a story that continues. >> for sure. how about the ara
